I'm running WebLogic 11g. I put two WARs into the autodeploy directory. Everything was fine. A few months later I no longer needed them so I deleted them from the autodeploy directory.
When I log into the WebLogic 11g Admin site, those WARs are still listed as being there under "deployments". If I try to delete those listing through the admin site I get told that since they were autodeployed they have to be manually deleted from the directory. Which I did, in addition to restarting WebLogic 11g and I even tried stopping the services first. No dice.
